Eagle City Council candidate Amy Aaron has launched a surveymonkey of Eagle residents, asking visitors to her Web site for feedback on how Eagle's doin'.

You may recall a few weeks back that citydesk readily admitted to not knowing who Aaron was.

According to her communications manager, Andrea Dearden, who is also the spokesperson for the Ada County Sheriff's Office, Aaron is planning and research supervisor for the sheriff, which means she tracks all of the data coming through the county agency, including the jail, and helps the agency with strategic planning.

Aaron also worked for Trout Unlimited, according to her bio.

Aaron is one of five candidates vying for two seats on the Eagle City Council, and it appears to be a group of classic overachievers.

John Grasser is Director of IT Business Services for the St. Luke’s Health System, Saundra McDavid has a law degree and an MBA (and a horse), and the incumbents are Jeanne Jackson-Heim, former mayor of Jackson Hole and ED of the Idaho Real Estate Commission, and Norm Semanko, also a lawyer and head of the state GOP.

Here's another weird thing. Aaron and Boise City Council candidate Lucas Baumbach both hold degrees from Cornell University, as does a certain BW citydesk blogger (ahem!). It appears to be an attempted Big Red takeover of the Treasure Valley politico-media machine.

Note: citydesk never met Aaron or Baumbach in Ithaca.
